White Chocolate Dipped Strawberries

White Chocolate Dipped Strawberries

When I was younger I ran my own holiday sweets business. Oh yes, the twelve year old me was already thinking about monetizing your assets. See the thing was that I could make a mean chocolate dipped strawberry. So why not sell them?? And sell them I did. I made and delivered flyers to everyone I knew (and a whole lot of strangers) and I got a bunch of phone calls (on our land line, those were the days) for orders. I did them for Valentines Day and Mothers Day. Later on I expanded my inventory and started selling for patriotic holidays and Father’s Day. I was rollin in the dough for a twelve year old, I’ll tell ya that much.

White Chocolate Dipped Strawberries - Creme de la Crumb

Have you ever purchased a chocolate dipped strawberry from an official chocolate shop?? They’re pricey! Seven bucks a pop! That’s pretty ridiculous because I am going to teach you how to make beautiful, delicious chocolate dipped strawberries yourself (and they’ll cost you a fraction of the price you’d pay for ONE strawberry from a shop!).

Author:
Recipe type: Dessert
Cuisine: American
Serves: about 12
Ingredients
  • 1 pound ripe strawberries
  • 1 12-ounce bag white chocolate chips
  • 4 tablespoons shortening
  • optional: sprinkles, food coloring
Instructions
  1. Rinse strawberries with cold water, gently (but thoroughly) pat dry with paper towels, set aside. Line a small-medium baking sheet (something that will fit in your fridge) with aluminum foil.
  2. In a microwave safe bowl (or double boiler) melt chocolate chips with crisco and stir until smooth. Carefully dip strawberries into melted chocolate, turning all the way around so that ll sides are coated with chocolate. Place on prepared baking sheet. When all strawberries are dipped, place baking sheet in the fridge to cool. Add a few drops of food coloring (color of your choice!) into the melted chocolate (if it has begun to set up just put it back in the microwave on half heat for a few seconds and give it a stir) and stir until smooth and coloring is even. Remove strawberries from fridge. Carefully transfer colored chocolate into a zip lock bag, seal it and snip off just a tiny bit of one bottom corner. Drizzle colored chocolate onto strawberries in any design you like. Top with sprinkles. Return to fridge for about 10 minutes to set up. Store in airtight container in fridge up to 3 days.

I just love chocolate covered strawberries and what better time than Valentine’s Day for this awesome treat! When I tried this before, my strawberries “weep”. I think I must have dipped when the candy coating was too hot? Tasted good, but not near as pretty as these!!

Only one thing I I love more than chocolate covered strawberries…..white chocolate covered strawberries

Yum!!! Love me some choc strawberries!

Why have I never thought of using WHITE chocolate before?!?

    I like white chocolate dipped strawberries 10x better than regular ones!! You have to try it!! πŸ™‚

I see recipes for dipped strawberries all the time but this caught my eye was unique and the recipe seems simple enough to be successful. Thank you!

Hi, I’m wondering why you use crisco with the melted chocolate? I’ve made chocolate covered strawberries tons of time. What does the crisco add to the taste?? They look amazing!
Thanks
